Flexible Dieting – Full Day Of Eating

{

As you may or may not know, in my previous article I introduced you “How IIFYM Changed My Life”. I know that some of you are not familiar with this kind of lifestyle, so I wanted to show you what I typically eat in a day. I usually try to get around 5-6 meals (including my snacks) but when I cannot eat this frequently, I try sticking to 3 bigger meals.

BREAKFAST

Egg & veggie scramble (230g egg whites, 1 whole egg, onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, riced cauliflower, power greens, pineapple salsa, low-fat bacon) and 2 slices of toast with peanut butter and cinnamon.

SNACK

Snack time is usually 2-3 hours after my breakfast. This also happens to be my pre-workout meal since I like to train in the late mornings. I love this meal simply because you can choose whatever you want as long as it fits your macros. My favourite snack is some different flavour oreos with a high-protein bar of choice!

POST-WORKOUT

As soon as I finish my workout I make some recovery smoothie. In this meal I like to go almost “no-fat” and I choose many different fruits. I also put some greens to get my vitamins. So, ingredients in this smoothie are usually – 100g frozen mango, 100g frozen strawberries, 100g spinach, 1/2 cucumber, 200ml almond milk and 30g protein powder.

LUNCH

For lunch I love making my homemade chipotle bowl. Seriously, I’m addicted to it – 100g basmati rice, 200g chicken breast, 1/2 avocado, 1 tomato, jalapeño, cilantro, 50g spinach, lime juice. You just can’t go wrong with that no matter if you are on ” Flexible Dieting ” or not

DINNER

This is actually my simplest meal of the day. I try sticking to high-protein foods and green veggies. I would usually have 200g salmon with mixed veggies or salad like – broccoli, baby carrots, green beans, tomatoes and 1tsp olive oil.

BED TIME SNACK

Now you know why my dinner was so low on calories, haha! I just love having a dessert as a last meal of the day. These raspberry brownies are the deal! And if you are wondering – yes, I eat the entire pan (like 8 brownies). Ingredients – 200g 0% greek yogurt, 100g almond milk, 1 egg, 20g protein powder, 10g cocoa, 65g raspberries, baking powder and 20g melted peanut butter for topping.

CALORIES

As you can see, these are actually pretty good macros considering that I had some of so called “forbidden” foods. I can’t stress enough how happy I am now when I can allow myself these foods because of flexible dieting. When I was eating clean I was scared to even take one single bite of such snacks. I hope you all benefit of these articles and remember that finding the perfect balance is key to a successful “IIFYM” diet. Let me know what you think about flexible dieting in the comment section bellow!
